Hello laddies,

I am making an LV2 extension for accessing and/or restricting the buffer
size.  This is straightforward, but I need to know just what
restrictions are actually needed by various sorts of DSP.

The sort of thing we're looking for here is "buffer size is always at
least 123 frames" or "buffer size is always a power of 2" or "buffer
size is always a multiple of 123".

I know "multiple of a power of two" is needed for convolution.  Not sure
what else...
